The following is a message from colleagues in Wales at People against Wylfa B
A Welsh MP, Albert Owen has been pushing for Cumbria to be the nuclear sacrifice zone.
Please write, phone, tweet, email and let this MP for Wales, Albert Owen know
that Cumbria is not willing to be the nuclear sacrifice zone . Lets show
solidarity with Wales, the only reason there is a ruthless push for
“geological disposal” here in Cumbria’s complex and leaky geology is to
facilitate insane new nuclear build in Wales and elsewhere.
“Dear friends in Cumbria,
There is a story in today’s Daily Post, the paper which has the widest
circulation in Anglesey, about the government’s announcement yesterday
regarding bribing communities to accept a geological nuclear waste
repository. Our bright spark of a Labour MP for Ynys Môn, Albert Owen who
is rabidly pro Wylfa B, is quoted in the story saying the dump should be in
Cumbria because you have the necessary “skills set” there and it is his
understanding that the geology is suitable. You can view the story in the
Daily Post online.
Mr Owen’s e-mail is email@example.com. I’m sure quite a number of you
would like to contact Mr.Owen to challenge him on his outlandish assumption
We in PAWB have strong links with the NFLA and Sean Morris, and the Stop
Hinkley gang. We have been down to two of their rallies in Somerset and
they have been up to one of ours in Llangefni. I think it is about time
that we got to know you in Cumbria better so that we can co-ordinate
campaigning and share ideas.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Co-ordinator PAWB, Pobl Atal Wylfa/ People against Wylfa B”
MP Albert Owen was given a free trip by GEHitachi to Japan at the end of June alongside Rhun
ap Iorwerth the Plaid Cymru Assembly member for Ynys Môn. They were over there for 5 days to cement the
relationship with GEHitachi and marvel at the wonders of the Advanced Boiling Water Reactor. Even worse than
that was the fact that the Leader and two senior officers from Ynys Môn County
Council and two senior civil servants from the Welsh Government also went on the trip at the expense of the
CoRWM will be holding a public meeting on September 4 here in Ynys Môn. This will be the same sort of
meeting that was held in Workington. We hope CoRWM will be given a good Welsh welcome and reminded that
a geological dump is unethical and unsafe ANYWHERE!
The first step to genuinely containing nuclear waste is to stop making any more.
